Documenting Chiropractic History in Canada.



Chiropractic was born in 1895 when Daniel David (DD) Palmer delivered a spinal adjustment to Harvey Lillard in 1987, DD opened the Palmer school of Chiropractic (PSC) in Davenport, Iowa and in 1906, authored “The science of chiropractic; its principles and adjustments”. Thus began a series of 39 Green Books, describing the philosophy and science of chiropractic as originated by DD Palmer. Mostly penned by DD’s son, Bartlette Joshua (BJ) Palmer and published by the PSC between 1906 and 1985. Thousands of documents from which the Green Books are based, are kept today in the Palmer Archives, the “fountainhead” of early chiropractic history.
